Price Heavily Reduced - Buy Now! Tenanted Triple Fronted CottageProperty ID 1500879Step back in time to imagine this triple fronted row cottage and shop in its hay day in the heritage township of Burra. Once a bustling mining town, but now more refined for farming, tourism and heritage and only 30 minutes from the Clare Valley. A scenic two hour drive from Adelaide, Burra represents excellent value for money for the astute purchaser and is a superb town in which to live. This character bluestone and slate settlers cottage built in the 1890s is a fine example of early miners architecture, and the original butcher shop.
If you're looking for a change of pace and an escape to the country it may be time to consider your options? Sell up in Adelaide and pay 1/3 of the price for a similar property in the Country. Well now is your opportunity to give it some real thought. This property was once divided into two cottages with a shop front. The property has now been opened up and presents as a large family row cottage. Outside all of the stone work has been repaired and re-pointed by local stone mason and the front bull nose verandah has been replaced. The cottage is set on a large block of 1000 sqm. This represents a fabulous investment and project for the entrepreneurial. The current owner has had plans drawn up to re-model the existing cottage back into three (STCC). Or you could renovate the home as it is. The home is currently tenanted with long term tenant at $150 per week. Inside as it stands there are 7 main rooms plus a country kitchen, bathroom, laundry and shop front. The flexible floor plan allows you to use the home as you wish. The original shop front has a cellar which has also been repaired. Character features include open fireplaces and traditional cottage features. At the rear of the block and old stone workshop/stable, that could also offer potential for a studio apartment. The potential with this property is enormous.
The inside needs some work, but the property has great bones. If you are a keen renovator or looking for a project to create multiple dwellings (STCC), then this is an opportunity too good to miss.
